Bus Trip to Museum • Sunday, February 24 • All Day

Retired CSU, Chico Art Historian Dolores Mitchell will lecture prior to an OLLI bus trip to the de Young Museum in San Francisco in February. Enjoy TWO blockbuster colorists – Claude Monet and Paul Gauguin – in TWO exhibits in one afternoon visit. During his late years, the well-traveled Monet stayed close to home, inspired by the variety of elements making up his own garden at Giverny. “Monet: the Late Years” features paintings from Monet’s garden, where he depicted flowerbeds, a Japanese Bridge, and watery reflections of willows and wisteria. “Gauguin: a Spiritual Journey,” showcases more than 50 paintings, wood carvings, and ceramics from Copenhagen, plus the Oceanic art that inspired him. Gauguin, who fled European civilization to become a “savage” in the South Seas, used color to express his intense feelings that were beyond words.
